Working to transform the child welfare system.

Governor: The department will close the 15-bed, 120-day program known as the Juvenile Offender Basic Training Camp (JOBTC) in Connell. Youth eligible for the JOBTC are low-risk, non-violent, non-sex offenders with a commitment of less than a year.
House/Senate: Savings are achieved through the closure of the Juvenile Offender Basic Training Camp (JOBTC) in Connell. The JOBTC was originally established for youth with short state commitments who were not violent offenders or sex offenders. Due to a smaller caseload and changes in the client mix, youth infrequently meet the original JOBTC eligibility criteria.
